6 February 2011
This is third day of the Lunar New Year. While most Chinese Singaporeans would be busy visiting their relatives or taking time to enjoy the long weekend, some youths dedicated their time promoting an event for youths by youths.
Hock Rong was the Organising Chairman for the City Alive! 2011, Singapore's biggest street dance party and also known as the post-Chingay party. He had this interesting idea of promoting the annual party event by having stilt walkers and volunteers distributing event flyers to youths at Orchard Road.
And so, I ended up with several volunteers from our Eunos Youth Club at the heart of Orchard Road, creating awareness to youths about the event.
It was a meaningful afternoon watching people getting intrigued by the stilt walkers and publicising City Alive! to many.
In the evening, some of the Singapore Participating Youths (PYs) for the 37th Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Programme had a dinner gathering with the first Japan PY to visit Singapore after the programme - Ellie.
Happy to introduce them to the Rasa Rasa Thai Seafood Restaurant in the humble neighbourhood of Eunos Division
